Writer gives good picture of Henry's six wives,
This review is from: The Six Wives Of Henry VIII (WOMEN IN HISTORY) (Paperback)
This book gives a good picture of Henry VIII's wives. A good and detailed view is given of each wife's background, the way she came to court, how her marriage with Henry begun, what is was like and how it all came to an end. A relatively big part of the book is handling about Catherine of Aragon, she was of course the woman who was married to the King for the longest period. The book not only gives a good picture of the lives of the six women, but also a good picture of what live was like in those days and all political, religious and international items that played a role. Good writing style. In other words a good book.
